Getting favorites from a browser.

I am trying to build an online bookmark manager and I want to try and
download the favorites in a browser. I know you can do
window.external.AddFavorite but can you do the reverse in any way, to
retrieve them from the browser into a page? I would assume that this
is not possible because of security reasons but there must be some way
of doing it?

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance...
